Blogging Portals

There are many Blogging Portals present on the Internet. Some Notable ones are as follows :

  1. Word Press
  2. Blogger (Blog Spot)
  3. Type Pad
  4. Live Journal
  5. Movable Type

These Blog Portals are Further Divided into Paid & Unpaid Blogs. Blogger (Blog Spot) & Word Press are Free Blogging Sites. Word Press is a great option for advanced bloggers who want their Blog Posts to be fully customized. However, for this extra feature the user is entitled to pay a minimal fee. The User can even host his Blog on a third-party website Using Word Press on Gator Host or 1and1. On the other side, Blogger comes from Google which is on par with the the latest plug-ins available on spot. There is no surprise as Blogger comes free of cost as the other products by Google.
Type Pad is for users with the least technical knowledge and want their Blog Posts to look much more attractive than others and are willing to pay for it, Typed Pad is the the most appropriate choice. Type Pad is a Blogging Interface with a high reputation and an easy to use Interface. Although, your Blog will not be hosted on a third party website as such but the Ease of use copes up with the loss. If a User wants his Blog to have a Social Network like feeling added to it and want their posts to be syndicated, then be aware of Live Journal. It is a paid blogging site. The only lowdown on this portal is the advertisement parade the site has. The Fact that even a Plus ( Paid ) account displays unwanted ads.
Now is the Time to Announce the Portal which in the author’s opinion is the best in this Business (Paid). It Has to be the Movable Type. It manages to keep all types of its users happy. Apparently written in PERL Programming Language, this portal has outgrown itself and how ? Movable Type offers a free self-hosted package to advanced users with all the latest possible configurations as well as a service for people who would like to host their Blog for free. It even allows users to publish innumerable Content Pages. The Most Read Blogs are from Movable Type. Be it Huffington Post, Power Line Blog or Boing Boing.

Other Blog Portals worth Mentioning are as follows :-

  1. Drupal
  2. Xanga
  3. Text Pattern
  4. TriPod
  5. Square Space

Some Tips For Advanced as well as new users :-

  1. Stay On Topic :- Always speak about what your Title really suggests.
  2. Do not post Irrelevant stuff :- Never post stuff which has pornographic content or a malicious link attached to it.
  3. Always have a Balanced Equation Between Textual Matter and Images. Too much Text often turns people away from your Blog.
  4. Check whether there are any Spelling Mistakes on your Posts. You will never want to irk readers with Spelling Mistakes.

Know Things to Consider when Pick a Blog Theme

Blogging programming, for example, WordPress make utilization of “topics” – truth be told, it is WordPress that has made such a huge market with a substantial interest for WordPress subjects. This is valid for WordPress as well as for other blogging stages – both facilitated like Blogger and independent like Movable Type. When you get such a blogging stage introduced or on account of blogger, you agree to accept a blog, you will see that there are various different topics accessible and in addition various modules or gadgets that can help change the general capacity of the site. So how would you pick a blog topic?

There are various things that you have to consider while picking a blog – these “things” are as per the following:

  • SEO – Search Engine Optimisation. You should make sure that your theme is SEO’d well – in terms of ability to add tags, accept trackbacks, include various incoming and outgoing links, include SEO plugins, include ad plugins such as for Google Adsense, has RSS Feeds. There are a number of free and paid SEO focused themes available.
  • SEO – Blogger. When using Blogger, you should change the HTML to change the default ‘nofollow’ added to comments. ForWordPress, comments are ‘dofollow’.
  • Design Customisation. Make sure that the theme you are considering has options that allow you to change the overall design – as far as color schemes and usage of own graphics like logos is concerned.
  • Columns. Make sure that you wisely select the number of columns for your blog – once selected, it is difficult for a person to change such columns. There are 1, 2 or 3 column options. Look at the previews.
  • Customisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is much more easier to customize and more flexible as well as easy to maintain since it is a hosted platform – but offers fewer options. WordPress on the other hand is a bit more difficult to customize as it requires some HTML/CSS knowledge and know how although it has a large number of options and plugins.
  • Monetisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is easier to monetize – but you may find yourself limited to Google AdSense and the like. WordPress on the other hand is harder to configure for monetization but you have complete flexibility.

 

The Whole Wide World Blog Types

Business blogs

Many professionals and businesses now have blogs. They can allow companies to communicate in a less formal style than has been traditional in newsletters, brochures and press releases, which can help to give a human face and voice to the organization. For individuals in business a blog can become a very effective way of building a network of like-minded individuals and raising their own profiles. Blog Maverick is a good example.

Personal blogs

Many millions of people keep blogs about their everyday lives, much like public diaries. These sometimes become very popular indeed, especially those anonymous, slightly risque ones. You know the sort: they get written about in the Sunday Times and become best-selling novels. One of the best-known personal blogs is Dooce. Political blogs Especially in the US, but increasingly in the UK, blogs are being written about politics. Often perceived as a response to media bias (across the political spectrum) they tend to comment on the news, giving closer analysis of issues they feel have been misrepresented or glossed over by mainstream media. In America most if not all of the contenders for the presidency in 2008 already have bloggers on staff to advise on reaching political bloggers and their readers. We are not quite at that stage in the UK, but blogging has been playing a part in the resurgence of grassroots Conservative politics, and right-of-centre bloggers such as Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes have been making their presence in the UK mainstream media. Influential examples from the political left include MediaLens and Harry’s Place.

‘Almost media’ blogs

Some blogs are unashamedly media businesses in their own right, taking advertising and employing a blogger or a group of bloggers full-time. Effectively, they are startups that are taking advantage of the new blogging technologies and opportunities to build communities of readers in new or niche subject areas. These are generally to be found covering news and opinion in the technology and media industries. Try Businesspundit.com or Hecklerspray.

Mainstream media blogs

Most national newspapers in the UK – not to mention the BBC – now have blogs for some of their reporters and editors. These can provide useful insights into the news gathering and reporting process, but will also give vent to personal views that the journalist may otherwise have kept to themselves. For example, see BBC business editor Robert Peston’s blog. It’s worth noting that while many journalist blogs are hosted on newspaper sites themselves, a large number are independent, personal blogs with a major focus on their professional interests.

Easy Way to Create Blog

On the off chance that you need to contact the overall gathering of people, you should turn to web sites. There are diverse sorts of web journals with different qualities some are online journals on the feelings of the individuals who are facilitating the blog. There are sure rumored sites who permit clients to have their online journals free of expenses. There is no requirement for you to have past information of hypertext markup language, simply compose your matter, transfer photographs and make labels.
